The Upper West Side’s First Modern Residential Building Transforms into 126 Condominium Residences, With New Interiors by CetraRuddy


Select Units with Original Finishes Also Released for Price Sensitive Upper West Side Residents 

Ideally located at the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway, overlooking Verdi Square, 212 West 72nd Street, an iconic modern Upper West Side building noted for its signature curved glass façade and dramatic presence, has undergone a transformation into 126 new condominium residences.

Award-winning architecture firm CetraRuddy has led an elegant redesign of the building’s lobby, residential interiors and amenity spaces, which have been upgraded to include an all-new residents’ lounge, children’s playroom, indoor-outdoor fitness center and an impressive landscaped rooftop deck. 

In addition to the new, CetraRuddy-designed residences, a selection of the homes at 212 West 72nd Street have been released for purchase in their original, prerenovation condition, available for buyers interested in a lower price point in a newly renovated, luxury building. These one- and two-bedroom residences, completed in 2010 when the building was formerly known as “The Corner,” were the premier rental offerings of the neighborhood. Today they present a rare opportunity for buyers to customize their own redesign after closing, and live in a centrally located building that has been beautifully upgraded by one of the top design firms in the city. 

A prime existing-condition listing is 16A, a two-bedroom residence with a favored split-bedroom layout. The interiors receive incredible natural light from south-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows and feature sweeping views of the Upper West Side and Hudson Yards. At 1,134 square feet, the spaces are expansive, with generous storage and a gracious layout for entertaining. The open, eat-in kitchen offers original finishes, including stainless steel appliances, Caesarstone countertops and polished chrome fixtures. 16A is currently being furnished by CetraRuddy and will soon launch as a model residence available for in-person and virtual tours. Residence 16A is offered at $2.37 million.

Purchasing an original residence like 16A at 212 West 72nd Street comes with many benefits to the buyer. Residents will be able to experience the condominium’s all-new design, upgraded amenities, the convenience of having Trader Joe’s and Duane Reade located within the building, as well as the 72nd Street subway across the street, all at a much more approachable price point than at a typical new development. With their savings, residents have the choice to pursue their own design vision for their new residence at their own expense, or to enjoy the existing modern finishes. Purchasers also have the option of interim occupancy prior to closing after they have signed their contract for the purchase of a condominium. 

The indoor and outdoor amenity spaces at 212 West 72nd Street have been a huge draw to prospective buyers on the Upper West Side. Residents will arrive home to an elegantly redesigned lobby staffed with a full-time doorman and concierge. The softly illuminated double-height space features walnut paneling, custom-finished walls and archways, and terrazzo flooring. 

212 West 72nd Street’s third floor features an all-new residents’ lounge that is designed to function as the building’s “great room” for city living, complete with seating areas and a landscaped outdoor terrace. Adjacent to the lounge is a children’s playroom, a light-filled room, complete with reading nooks and colorful banquettes, to be used for play, arts and crafts, reading, or homework. The third floor’s indoor-outdoor fitness center, designed by The Wright Fit, is a state-of-the-art offering, outfitted with stationary bikes, treadmills and strength-training equipment. 212 West 72nd Street’s fitness space features stunning wood paneling and oversized windows overlooking the landscaped outdoor fitness space to be used for yoga, meditation, private training sessions and much more.

An impressive, landscaped private roof deck, offering residents panoramic views of New York’s iconic buildings, crowns the 20-story building. Residents will enjoy a sundeck with lounges, private entertaining spaces, barbeques and a cozy gas fireplace. Additional amenities and services include move-in services, a live-in resident manager, cold storage, bicycle storage and private residents’ storage.

Initial inventory for the new condominium residences at 212 West 72nd Street are priced from $1.25 million to $8.3 million. These residences range in size from 714 square feet to 3,070 square feet, with select homes boasting spacious private terraces with cinematic Upper West Side views. Many also feature open floor plans that take advantage of the building’s curved glass façade, a concept that provides abundant light and commanding vistas on the Upper West Side.
